How to Write Great Patterns that Knitters Will Love to Make

Knitting patterns are notorious for inaccuracies in measurements and confusing directions—but no more! The Knitting Pattern Writing Handbook sets new standards for clear, accurate pattern writing, walking aspiring and experienced designers alike through each must-have component of a thorough, well-written pattern, including how to devise and present gauge, charts, and sizing information that is correct and easy-to-follow. With a focus on how to make patterns accessible to contemporary knitters—especially beginning knitters—this much-needed reference book is destined to become a classic in an industry that is beginning to professionalize after decades (even centuries!) of informal and home-based instruction. With 90,000 patterns being sold annually on the popular knitting community site Ravelry, there’s a burgeoning group of indie knitwear designers eager for this guidance, provided by authors Kristina McGrath and Sarah Walworth, who host a monthly live broadcast on the technical aspect of knitting design.

AUTHORS:
Kristina McGrath worked as a freelance technical editor for knitting patterns for 7 years, after a decade of knitting all the things, and now works as a consultant in the industry, as well as hosting Tech Tip Talk with Sarah Walworth. She is passionate about good fit and size-inclusivity, and helping to make working with patterns the best it can be, for designers, editors, and knitters. Kristina lives in Massachusetts with her family, and lots of pencils and paperweights.

Sarah Walworth re-learned to knit as an adult when she needed a way to keep her hands busy while homeschooling her children. It quickly cascaded into re-writing patterns to fit her, absorbing all the techniques, and eventually training to be a technical editor and pattern grader. After several years of working as a freelance technical editor, she now runs The Tech Editor Hub (www.thetecheditorhub.com), where she is building a community of yarn professionals advancing their technical skills and growing successful businesses. Walworth cohosts Tech Tip Talk with Kristina McGrath, and lives in North Texas with her husband of 25 years, their small flock of chickens and 2 crazy herding dogs
